6:47 pm
a record, 61 for jfk, a record 60 for iceland. central park we needed to get to 63. didn't get there. one of the cooler locations in bridgeport, connecticut. 40 degrees is the norm. today was 61. 21 degrees above normal. only two degrees shy of the record. and we do have another record overall. most 60-degree days or warmer in december. the previous record, 8. as of today, we have 11 this december. we shattered that record. that's for sure. we're taking a look. the rain, we have more moving here is the line. you can see it there. wet weather, right? warm front lifts through. we're getting a surge of warm air. here's the cold front. colder air moves in. we turn on the futurecast tomorrow night. that's when temperatures drop enough to support this cold. so it's cold enough, and the moisture is present. this is what we're expecting early tuesday morning.

6:51 pm
steve ober meyer is here. >> i don't know what the patriots were thinking, but i think all jets fans are thinking, thank you, i appreciate it. a bill belichick team, they don't beat themselves, but today we saw them make a mental mistake on a very important coin flip. this wasn't just a must-win for the jets. the patriots banged up on both sides of the ball, especially in the secondary. that's where brandon marshall
6:52 pm
he sets a record for the jets for the most receptions in a season. he also brought in a couple of touchdowns. the jets had a 14-point lead in this one. the last five yets patriots games have been decided by 7 points or less. it wasn't a surprise when new england tied the game in the final two minutes, which make this is decision so baffling. the patriots chose to kick the ball in overtime. the gaffe not only gave the jets the ball, it also gave them the choice to go with the wind, and they did. ryan fitzpatrick had only beaten the patriots once in his career. things are different now. over his last five games, he's thrown just one interception and 13 touchdowns, including the game-winning walkoff td to eric decker. jets win 26-20. once again now sit in the final wild card spot. here's why.
6:53 pm
let down against their arch rival in baltimore, ben roethlisberger throwing two interceptions. pittsburgh falls to the ravens. the jets control their own destiny. now the jets will secure a playoff spot with a win next week against the buffalo bills. >> we have a long way to go. we have ways to go. we have things to clean up. we have not arrived. they fight. they've got character. and they learn how to play together. that's the biggest thing we're doing right now. >> we have to work hard this week and go to buffalo with a million different storylines there. you know, we've got to win the game, so excited that that's kind of figured out at this point, that we do control our own destiny, but we've got to take care of business. >> watching the giants tonight. the focus is certainly going to
6:54 pm
their star receiver, and a shot at the playoffs. last night the redskins beat the eagles to win the afc east. this is going to be the fourth straight year the giants missed the playoffs. tom coughlin could be coaching his final games for the big blue. they're playing for nothing but pride. we'll see how much they have. highlanders taking on their rival at the christmas break. it's backup goaltender between the pipes. it is scoreless right now in the first intermission. finally, a staple of the nets games. for the past 19 years, a super fan called mr. whammy. he stands behind the goals, coasting a curse at the free throw shooter, but security thought -- i guess he had too much enchantment on this encan'tation.
6:55 pm
he was nearly removed from the game. he was allowed to stay. if you're wondering if he has a whammy that works, apparently opponents' shooting percentage drops 3% when they're shooting at his goal. >> thanks so much. that does it for cbs 2 news at 6:30. for the entire cbs 2 news team, thanks so much for joining us. we'll beback again tonight at
6:56 pm
